I was facing a less than favorable case. I prefer not to get into the details. But I will say that I could have been easily convicted. It was not going in my favor by any stretch of the law. After working with Brett Metcalf and his partner Sam Harden....they were able to get my case dismissed. I am more than happy with the outcome as I was facing a charge that I did not want to have to explain for the rest of my working career. Brett and Sam both were very patient with me and kept my mind at ease throughout the process of many sleepless nights thinking about this case. I am so happy that this is all over with and I would highly recommend working with them if you are facing any kind of prosecution. Before hiring them I spoke to several other attorneys who were not as confident or reassuring of my case outcome. I would just like to say thank you for being patient with me and working with me throughout the process! I hope for my sake I never need to hire you again...but if I ever need another attorney you will be first on my list!

I was charged with a misdemeanor for wreckless driving after I missed my exit on the highway and tried to drive in the grass back toward the exit. I know it sounds silly, but it was the last exit before a very, very long bridge across the ocean. Brett Metcalf represented me for my case, and he did an exceptional job! I chose Brett because of the good reviews that I saw on his profile on Thumbtack and for the fact that he was from the area where I got my ticket and was very familiar with how the Hillsborough County court cases normally go. I've never committed a crime my entire life, so needless to say, I was extremely worried about how it could affect my future if this were to go on my criminal record. Brett was very reassuring. He talked me through the whole process, and he really helped to calm me down. I had a lot on my plate at the time, so it made me feel much better to know that he was going to be able to get everything taken care of. I reached out to him a few times, and he always made sure to get back to me. When he wasn't available in his office, his partner Sam Harden was always willing to help me with my questions and concerns. In the end, Brett was able to get my case dismissed in court with no additional fines, fees, or requirements and no criminal record! I don't think it can get any better than that! I truly can't thank him enough!

Brett Metcalf has 100% saved my life! I was arrested for a DUI one night in April. I recently moved to Tampa a few months before my arrest where i was starting a new life for myself. I am 23 so this was a big deal for me leaving home to start a new adventure living here. I had fallen asleep at the wheel and was woken up by the police when they found me. Brett kept me informed, comforted me about the case when i was freaking out about what i was going to do with my life. I had my mind set on returning home to live back home with my parents. Brett used a great strategy and ended up winning my case. He was very confident about my case and let me know. If it wasn't for him and his words of encouragement i could be sleeping on my parents couch with a DUI on my record and little chance of obtaining a career i would want. Not only did Brett win my case but he got it completely dropped resulting in NO COURT FEEs, NO COMMUNITY SERVICE, & the best part was it resulted in a NOLLE PROSEQUI which means i had NO PROSECUTION. Many DUI cases that end up not getting convicted end up as a wreckless driving which i would of been happy with, But Brett went beyond my expectation getting me completley off the hook. I have so much gratitude for Brett. Exactly one day after i had found out the good news i had landed my dream job in Tampa with a top 10 company nationwide. I was worried about my background check though because it takes the court system a few days to process the Nolle Prosequi so i thought it would show up and i would lose the job. He reassured me that everything was going to be fine and (This is my favorite part about brett) Said he would write a letter to my recruiter explaining the details of the case and how everything unfolded. The fact that he would go out of his way after he won the case just showed how much he really cares about his clients. Luckily nothing had came up on my background check so i was able to start my dream job & begin to focus on my life in Tampa. So with that all being said Brett has gotten my case dropped, which allowed me to land my dream job. Without him i would be SLEEPING ON MY PARENTS COUCH with no idea what to do with my life in a cold nothern city. Now i'm living the dream working harder than ever with a second chance at life in beautiful sunny florida. What else can i say Brett saved me life and i am forever grateful for him.

Recently my college student child need a lawyer for a small legal matter, A fellow club member recommended Brett Metcalf and Sam Harden. They set a goal for the case and quickly went to work. They attended several hearings and filed the needed motions at a very reasonable fee. The case ended as we had hoped and I can say with complete certainty, that we could not have chosen better representation.

Mr. Metcalf represented myself in case where I faced charges that I shouldn't have been faced with. Mr. Metcalf was extremely professional and exercised great diligence. In a time sensitive case he was able to execute at the highest level and produced the best possible outcome. I was never charged and the State Attorneys Office agreed with Mr. Metcalf, therefore nothing was ever filed. I would highly recommend Mr. Metcalf.

My Son has been to Prison once. He got out, and got right backk into trouble with drugs, and also has 2 drunk driving charges, with a violation of probation.
He originally had a public defender, who said he must go back to Prison for 5 years.
My Son pleaded with me to get him a real lawyer, so I asked around in my circle of friends, to see if anyone knew of a good criminal defense lawyer in Tampa.
I heard about Brett Metcalf, and I looked into hiring him.
He allowed me to pay him in 2 payments.
As soon as I made the first payment, he went to the Jail to see my Son.
My Son had several misdemeanors, as well as a Felony Charge, in 2 separate jurisdictions.
Brett was able to get everything handled in one courtroom, and negotiated with the State Prosecutors for a great plea bargain deal, that included the all so important Drug and Alcohol Treatment my Son needed !
My Son was released from Jail, to go into an Inpatient Drug Treatment Program, instead of going back to Prison for 5 years!
He is currently in that program, and is doing wonderful!
This is not the first time I have hired a Tampa Criminal Defense Attorney for my Son.
The last 2 Lawyers I hired for him took our money, but never delivered the results they promised.
One of these lawyers actually said "Your Son needs to go to Prison", after he took nearly 5 thousand dollars of our money.
Brett kept both my Son (who was in Jail), and myself, updated constantly, throughout the entire Hillsborough County Florida Criminal Court Process.
As I said before, my Son had criminal charges (Misdemeanors) in Plant City Florida Court, and Felony Charges in Tampa.
Brett was able to get all charges heard by the Felony Court Judge in Tampa!
This alone, saved my Son months of unneeded jail time!
Both my Son and I are extremely happy with Brett Metcalf, and his fee's were reasonable as well.

I hired Brett to help with my son's court case and was extremely pleased with the overall experience. Brett always kept me informed regarding all proceedings. He was very accessible via e-mail and phone whenever I needed to reach him. He possesses great knowledge of the law, answered all of my questions and handled my son's case with great knowledge and professionalism. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. I would highly recommend him to help with any legal problems. Thanks Brett!

Brett was recommended to me by another attorney as a trustworthy and professional attorney, and he fulfilled our every expectation. Brett was very proactive in getting me information and the progress in my case and was able to settle my case in 2 weeks without me having to go to court!

Brett was very helpful with my case. He was instrumental in getting my case resolved much to my satisfaction. He kept me informed and explained everything concerning the case. I would definitely recommend him anyone in need.
